Six Television Shows That Have Really Lost Some Steam

Do you realize how hard it is to have a television show make it past 10 years?  Hell it’s tough to make it past one.  But honestly I think the reason is because it’s just too hard to keep an audience captivated with the same characters and stories for so long.

Which is why I’m still amazed and will always be amazed by Seinfeld.  How that show entertained me for nearly a decade and me not tiring at all is beyond me.   That and Married with Children.    But even those two shows tired a bit in their last couple of seasons.

And now?  Now we have some shows that I think are tiring as well.  Personally they might need to finally be taken off the air.  Here are my five….

House


In its seventh season now, House just isn’t good anymore.  The funny thing is that the dialogue isn’t all that different.  House is still a dick but it just doesn’t have the allure it used to.  And to put House and Cuddy together really makes me want to vomit.  It sucks because I really love House but I just don’t think I can do it anymore.  And Wilson, you’re getting really old buddy!

The Office


We’ve been saying this a while now here at Unreality.  The show needs to end, now.  Jim and Pam are horrible.  And it’s almost as if you can tell that the writers have given up on putting anything remotely interesting on the show anymore.  It’s gone.  It’s just gone.  And continuing without Carell?  Granted I think he’s horrible but you have to admit he’s kind of the glue that holds the show together.  I don’t know man.  Quit while you’re ahead.   I mean give the new company and Kathy Bates a rest will ya?

30 Rock


This is kind of the same thing as House.  I feel like if I were watching 30 Rock for the first time I would love it.  However now that it’s been on for 5, yes FIVE seasons I’m just not laughing that hard anymore.  Even Tracy Morgan is tiring me out.  It’s no offense to 30 Rock.  It’s just kind of like, “what else can you guys really do anymore?”

Desperate Housewives


This show is still on television?  How is this possible?  What is this season 20?  Crazy.   Take it off, and fast.

American Idol


No Simon?  Wrong.  No Abdul?  Wrong.  Paying a gazillion dollars for rock stars to judge?  Wrong.  It’s all wrong.  It’s a great concept but come on man.  No joke this show should have ended after the 5th season.  It was still really popular and still had some zest.

Grey’s Anatomy


I honestly thought this show was no longer on television.  Mcdreamy?  Shut up.  Ellen Pompeo is NOT attractive and nothing will ever be as good as ER.  Good night.
